Terrance Knighton, Redskins DL tackles Flint, Michigan water problem

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan is a big problem. Some of the biggest members of the Washington Redskins pitched in with a sizeable donation.

The Redskins defensive line served as team leaders throughout Washington's 2015 season. With the lead-contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan making national news, the unit is once again taking on a leadership role or at least offering some large helping hands.

In keeping with both their physical stature and personality, they did it up big. Terrance Knighton announced via Twitter that the D-line collaborated to ship 3,600 bottles of bottled water to Flint.

One hallmark of the defensive line group all year, togetherness. They all wore personalized Nationals jerseys after one home game. When it came to team goals and mindset, they essentially spoke in unison, keeping positive even through early struggles. Communication remains central even with the season over.
